Asked for a fishing trip, and Captain Pat was honest about what was the best fishing for that area. Captain Pat was so humble we didn't know how good we did until we talked to several other fisherman who all wanted to know where we caught our fish. He definitely knows his stuff and works hard to keep you in the fish. He's quite polite and you 'll have a fun day!

Wow, I took my son and two sons in law fishing while in Sooke on a family vacation. Great way to spend the better part of a day with amazing scenery, good fun, a great captain (Pat) and 8 big salmon. It was such a cool outing and we all highly recommend Pat and the experience. Cheers Pat!

My husband and I made our way to the coast for the first time with friends. What a beautiful place! We got a little lost so early in the morning but did finally make our way to Pat (our guide) on the dock in Sooke. What an experience! We caught a couple good sized salmon and lost a smaller one. Pat was great. Very informative and humorous. He was very laid-back as he handed the fishing pole over to each of my husband and then me. Such an experience! It really is Beautiful British Columbia! Thanks Pat. Suzanne and Ted

Bluefin fishing with Pat was a wonderful experience. Firstly, Pat was clearly a professional and he was always busy cleaning lines and checking the bait. He also took us well out of Sooke Harbour, whereas many boats simply stay at the mouth of the harbour. We came home with 2 Coho and 1 Chinook and Pat also gave us some crabs from the trap he put out. We felt like we did pretty well given the general chatter that there were no boats and after seeing and hearing a few boats coming back empty we felt pretty good. Definitely happy with this choice!

We could not have asked for a better day...weather wise it was perfect, Patrick's humour was right on the money and we took home some beautiful chinook salmon and crabs. What a feast! Thanks Pat!
